What is Backlot? Nov 2, 2017

Dear CaterinaSc,

I do not know this term too. I have searched through the web and that's what I have found:
**************************************************************************
Question:

What is Backlot?

Answer:

Backlot is the primary tool for tracking communication between Netflix, Content Partners, and Fulfillment Partners. Conveniently designed as a web-based utility, it is the single place to monitor all asset deliveries into Netflix. You can also get access to proxy video for conformance of secondary assets and get full trend reports to monitor your progress.

Hi Caterina,
Morano found the correct information. Backlot refers to Netflix. You can get qualified to proofread using their system. Once qualified, you get a login and you can go online, see what work needs doing and do some of it.

Regards,
Esther

Ok thanks a lot, and how can I get qualified to QC using their system? Because I took the Hermes test for subtitling, I passed it, although I didn't receive any job from them, yet: is it the same test or shall I follow another procedure?

Hi,

Backlot is a site Netflix use for QC its materials. (Originals and other stuff).

I passed with one of the vendors who cooperating with Netflix in this project.

Although, I didn't receive any job yet, but I think it's pretty possible to receive job in the near future. According to your pair and the performance.

Can you told the vendor who sent you the email? For curiosity.

Regards,
